Stinkbugs hiding behind fridge by hundreds.

Hiding places count. We worked hard to vacume and clean our MH last Nov. Took a Christmas week trip and saw very few bugs, maybe 10-20.

Turns out they were hibernating. We brough home this weekend for spring cleaning.

This is incredible:
1. Picked up about 100 dead ones when we picked it up from storage.
2. So we bombed on nite. Next morning I counted. Vacumed up 297 on the floor.
3. While cleaning found about another 50.
4. Then I found them behind the fridge in large numbers and vacumed up maybe 50 more. We decided to bomb. After 2 hours I removed the fridge outside vent (we blocked with trash bag) and OH MY - must have been 250 there. They literally fell out onto the ground.
5. So we bombed again. Two hours later maybe 100 this time.

It was a disgusting weekend but we vacumed up between 800 and 1000 of the little buggers.

Best of luck if your in this mess also.

John and Caren,
We visited Quantico last fall and we have been cleaning up dead ones ever since. They seem to multiply when they are dead. We bombed (two bombs each time and one in the basement which is all open at the top pass through) and now several months later we are still seeing dead ones. I think tomorrow will require another bombing and thanks for the tip on the refrigerator vent. I'll stick one in there also.

The fortunate thing is that they eat only leafy plants, vegetables and fruits.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.
